Threat Lifecycle Management

Threats Have Evolved—Has Your Security Program?

The perimeter is gone and your attack surface is rapidly growing thanks to cloud-based applications, mobile technologies, and the Internet of Things (IoT). In addition, today’s advanced threat actors are circumventing traditional defenses. It’s never been more important to detect and kill threats early in the cyber attack lifecycle to avoid downstream consequences and costs.

Modern Threat Landscape

The Modern Cyber Threat Pandemic

Reduce Time to Detect and Respond to Threats

Data breaches don’t happen overnight. Threats must first penetrate your environment and then be allowed to operate undetected—for weeks or even months. Fortunately, high-impact cyber attack incidents can be largely avoided if you detect and respond quickly.

Threat Lifecycle

The Cyber Attack Lifecycle


Reconnaissance

The threat actor assesses your defenses, and how to perform the initial compromise. Whether through spear phishing, zero-day exploit, physical compromise or bribing an employee, they will find a way in.

Initial Compromise

The threat actor bypasses your perimeter defenses and gains initial entry to your network through a compromised system or user account. They can now authenticate within the internal network.

Command & Control

The threat actors put back doors and remote access tools (RATs) in place. They can now stealthily return at any time to continue their mission.

Lateral Movement

The threat actor scans your internal network, identifying additional targets. They compromise more systems and more user accounts. Their foothold and access in your environment is now widespread.

Target Attainment

The threat actor identifies and finally gains access to the systems of interest. They now have all the access they need to realize their objective.

Exfiltration, Corruption and Disruption

This is where cost to your business rises exponentially if the attack is not defeated. The threat actor realizes their mission. They might steal intellectual property or other sensitive data, corrupt mission-critical systems, or generally disrupt the operations of your business. In any case, they have done real damage.

Dramatically Reduce Detection and Response Times

To protect your company from large-scale impact, you need to detect and respond to threats quickly. This requires efficiency of operations and a well-enabled team. The LogRhythm platform optimally serves both needs by delivering end-to-end Threat Lifecycle Management.

Threat Lifecycle Management

The effectiveness of your security monitoring and response program is largely determined by the efficiency of your workflows. How much visibility does your team have into your environment? How many alarms can they qualify every day? How quickly can they respond to incidents?

Threat Lifecycle Management (TLM) is the key to answering these questions and maximizing your team’s security effectiveness. TLM is a series of aligned security operations capabilities. It begins with the ability to “see” across your IT environment and ends with the ability to quickly mitigate and recover from security incidents. The result? Faster detection and response, while keeping staffing levels flat.

LogRhythm delivers effective TLM, from data collection and analysis through neutralization to full recovery. You’ll see more, investigate more, and respond more quickly.

Unified Threat Lifecycle Management Workflow

Collect

You can’t detect what you can’t see. LogRhythm collects log and machine data from across the enterprise and augments this machine data with critical context. LogRhythm’s network and
endpoint forensic sensors provide further visibility across the extended IT environment. Learn more about Log Management.

Discover

Our big data analytics approach ensures no threat goes unnoticed. Machine analytics automatically analyze all collected data, detecting both routine and advanced threats automatically. Our powerful search capabilities enable your team to efficiently hunt for threats and reduce your mean time to detection. Learn more about Security Analytics.

Qualify

An efficient qualification process allows you to analyze a greater number of alarms with less staff. LogRhythm automatically qualifies all threats with a 100-point risk-based priority score so your team knows where to spend their time. Alarms also provide immediate access to rich forensic detail displayed in user-friendly analysis tools.

Investigate

It is critical to ensure that qualified threats are fully investigated. Enable collaborative investigations by using our embedded incident response capabilities and automate your routine investigatory tasks with SmartResponse™ actions. Dashboards and live activity feeds provide real-time visibility into active investigations and incidents.

Neutralize

When an incident is qualified, you must implement mitigations to reduce and eventually eliminate risk to the business. For some threats, such as ransomware or compromised privileged users, every second counts. Use easily accessible and updated incident response processes, coupled with SmartResponse automation, to maximally reduce MTTR.

Recover

Collateral damage often exists after an incident. Threats may lurk in the system or return through a backdoor. LogRhythm’s incident response orchestration provides central access to all required information. Collaborative workflows bring teams together for rapid recovery.

Workflows that Work

Don’t piece together your technologies and processes. TLM can be realized via a combination of disparate systems. However, overall effectiveness is then dependent upon complex API-level integrations and the speed in which you can navigate across multiple product interfaces.

Use LogRhythm—the only platform for end-to-end Threat Lifecycle Management—to streamline your security operation, accelerate your threat response and reduce risk for your organization. You’ll be able to detect more threats and respond to more incidents.
